The Apparel Importers Trade and Transportation conference will be held in New York City, November 7, 2018. This is one of the industry’s most important transportation and logistics events, which will bring together executives working in compliance, logistics, sourcing, supply chain management, government relations, and corporate social responsibility to discuss the impact of the elections on trade and business, as well as other hot topics.
Dozens of global fashion brands, retailers, importers, and industry service providers will be present. An array of expert speakers from across the supply chain will speak on varied topics. The focus will be on US-China trade tensions and how companies can mitigate the impact of the tariff increases.
In addition to trade policy, the conference will include discussions on retail, sustainability, and innovation, including experts from Levi Strauss and Co., Macy’s Merchandising Group, BSI, Canopy, Lenzing, and PwC. The conference will feature speakers from The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, The Port of Long Beach, GEODIS USA, Bamboo Rose, and more.
The event is hosted by the US Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) and the American Import Shippers Association. USFIA works to eliminate the tariff and non-tariff barriers that impede the industry’s ability to trade freely and create economic opportunities in the United States and abroad.
